Frozen Food Meals for The Menopause Diet

Quick frozen food meals that work with The Menopause Diet

In a hurry and want something from the frozen food section? If the cooking fairy never taps you on the head, then stock your freezer with a few of these products.These frozen meals are acceptible ONLY because of the calorie count, which is between 250-300. . .they are not ideal but better than a bagel with jam! Remember, if you keep your meals between 250-300 calories, your insulin levels will remain smooth as silk REGARDLESS of the composition. Yes, I know they have pasta and other items that are high glycemic, but the portions are teeny. Again, these are NOT IDEAL (lots of salt and 19g of sugar) but it’s the best I could find on the market for those of you who are “cooking impaired.”
